Get me to the (Fill in the blank________) on Time!!

Did the last wedding you attended start on time - probably not! If you were sitting in the bright, hot summer sun, you were probably wishing you had worn your cool and comfortable sunflower sun-dress instead of the sleek black one that does such a great job of accentuating all your Positive attributes! How about the babies that were fussy or the elderly guests that were looking pretty wilted - they were probably as uncomfortable as you, or worse!

If you want to be remembered as a Bride that was considerate of all her guests, PLEASE, put yourself in their position. Would you want to be waiting 20 - 30 minutes (or more) with no idea about what is holding up the ceremony ~ sitting in the sun, rain, cold or heat tends to put a damper on anyone’s enthusiasm, no matter how much they love and adore you!

Take some time to plan out the entire ceremony and share the details with everyone that needs to know. Even if you are working with a Wedding Coordinator, it is your responsibility to make certain the wedding party, your parents and in-laws know when to arrive at the chosen venue and to provide specific directions, to the ceremony site, once they have reached the location. Also, make certain your Officiant has been provided with detailed directions, too!

If you remember these simple tips, you will have Guests that are thrilled to be sharing your day and will remember you as considerate and courteous - wishing more Brides were just like You!
